I have a nice pc. I do not have a nice laptop.
I am going to graduate school, and I need to have a portable computer that can also do some computations (training machine learning algorithms in case you’re curious).
I thought it would be a good idea to pick up a really light, cheap laptop, put Linux onto it, and ssh into my home computer from campus over the internet for heavy lifting.
Is this safe? Obviously my port will likely be discovered, but is the probability I get hacked very high? (I use very secure passwords)
